In summary the book is deep, interesting and very well written.
My friends and colleagues have a hard time believing that one of the most entertaining books I have ever read is about risk management and probability.
Bernstein is a good story teller who adeptly blends human faces and quantitative theories to tell the history of man's understanding of risk.
Bernstein wrote a classic, page-turned about risk management and actuarial science. The guy's a master. I've lent my book out numerous times - hard to get it back. Read morePublished 3 days ago by Jim
Excellent introduction to the risk measure history, and it provides a qualitative foundation for the people willing devote themselves into risk management industry.Published 2 months ago by Meng Tang
Condition was described as Excellent, however, I would rate it as Fair. Pages were yellowed with age and page edges were soiled.
This appears to be a very used library book.
Great narrative of risk, as a subject. The chapters in the beginning and end are especially well written.Published 2 months ago by george mchugh
